Excellent points, well made. We disagree, but I respect the manner in which you present them. Thanks. And welcome.

Well crap! That doesn't give us anything to bittery insult each other over. This is no fun. I'm going home.

I'm certainly in no position to argue that Penny-Arcade, the 7-year-old video game comic on Teh Internets, has had anywhere near the influence Mr. Ellison can claim on literature and society. I don't think influence (as an extension of a "worth" arguement, I believe) is really the issue. If it were ...

Somehow, I sense you could have figured out all this yourself.
I appreciate the discussion contained between these quotes, but what made these necessary? Pride? Resentment? Ego? Exhasperation?

I wonder how far this discussion would go if it were limited to the people who actually WITNESSED it? I mentioned this in the other thread, but I think it bears repeating (paraphrased): I wonder how far this discussion would go if it were limited to people for whom it was any of their business? The...

Perhaps I misunderstand your position, but using the 15th century analogy would appear to clash with "restoring what we've taken" - as the outcomes of those travels o'er the seas were not migrations, but expansions. Or are you suggesting that the system will restore itself, and for our own sake we'd...

And fortunately for most ultra-conservatives (unfortunately for the rest of us), the converse also holds.

Name: Reverend Ted Source: unca20051120.htm I do hate to pipe in, as this whole affair is Clearly None of My Business (as much as the Internet Mentality does goad us on to invest ourselves emotionally in Other People's Affairs), but I just want to clarify if Mr. Ellison is being sarcastic or ironic...

I think one of the biggest problems of the Internet Mentality (and I've fallen victim to this many-a-time) is the issue of "When the hell did this become YOUR business, anyway?" The nature of the medium provokes EVERYONE to voice their opinion on EVERYTHING. We become emotionally invested in events ...

If you've never read anything by Ellison why are you here? A perfectly reasonable question. My curiosity was piqued by "Gabe's" description of the events, and only intensified as my cursory Google inquiries turned up more information about Harlan's obviously illustrious career. Based on my (obvious...

Name: ReverendTed Source: unca20051120.htm Re: Steve Barber You're absolutely right about the effect Internet anonymity has on the demeanor of the average individual. Admittedly, "average" may be too kind an assessment in many trolling cases. Interestingly enough, "Gabe" himself described the very ...

They've posted their own account here , but I'd be very interested in hearing the other side of the story, though I'd imagine it involves "not being shown respect by a couple of college dropouts that crack d**k jokes for a living." (A title I seriously doubt they'd refuse.) I'll admit that I'm a fan...
